The purpose of this study is to adapt Academic Self-Regulation Questionnaire, which was developed by Ryan and Connell (1989), into Turkish making sure that it is valid and reliable for Turkish conditions. In order to maintain the language equivalence of the questionnaire, two applications were carried out, leaving three weeks between them and consequently a high-level, positive and meaningful relation was found. For the validity and reliability study of the questionnaire of which language equivalence is provided, participants consist of 762 students who study at 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade in the education year of 2012-2013 at governmental secondary school in Gaziantep.As a result of the explanatory factor analysis, it was found that the questionnaire had a four-factored structure consisting of 17 items.The loadingvalues of these items changed between 0.477 and 0.818 and the item-total correlations were between .24 and .47. This structure was confirmed by Confirmatory Factor Analysis. The test-retest Pearson correlation factor of the questionnaire was 0.85 and its Cronbach Alpha was calculated as 0.78. Under the circumstances, we can say that the version of ASRQ which was adapted into Turkish is valid and reliable.
